Depending on where you live, and what your preferences are, you might spend a significant amount of time riding inside. Even in a relatively mild climate, it's easy to find yourself relegated to indoor riding for at least half of the year. You've already got one of the best turbo trainers for a realistic riding experience and the best computer for indoor cycling to connect it to, but have you put the same thought into the clothing you are wearing?

Even if you haven't put a lot of thought into it, the best cycling clothing brands have been busy thinking about it for you. We have a list of the best indoor cycling clothing but Assos is a new entry into the space. As with everything the Swiss brand does, it's top of the line, but is it right for you though?

Josh hails from the Pacific Northwest of the United States but would prefer riding through the desert than the rain. He will happily talk for hours about the minutiae of cycling tech but also has an understanding that most people just want things to work. He is a road cyclist at heart and doesn't care much if those roads are paved, dirt, or digital. Although he rarely races, if you ask him to ride from sunrise to sunset the answer will be yes.
